Terms and Conditions
The following conditions form the basis for the provision of your holiday accommodation. Please read these carefully together with our letter or email confirming your booking.
1. General The existence of these booking conditions is communicated to customers before payment for any part of the holiday is accepted to enable you to read them or have them read, faxed, e-mailed or posted to you before you commit to booking your accommodation. The conditions apply whether or not you elect to see them before you pay for your holiday. Once payment for the holiday, or of the deposit has been accepted, you have effected a contract for your accommodation. These terms and conditions are specific to Pond Cottage but are based on those applied by Isle of Wight Tourism from whom you may have received provisional details.
2. Payments If your holiday is booked less than six weeks before arrival, the full price is payable at the time of booking. If the holiday is booked more than six weeks in advance, you pay a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total price at the time of booking. Should the total value of the booking be less than the required deposit you pay the full amount at the time of booking. The balance is payable no less than six weeks prior to your holiday arrival date. If the balance has not been paid by this time the booking will be deemed cancelled (see 4, Cancellation by you).
3. Confirmation of booking We will post confirmation of your booking upon receipt of payment for the holiday or payment of the deposit, whichever appropriate. Please will you read the confirmation letter upon receipt and notify us by telephone or e-mail immediately if you do not agree with these conditions or the letter. We cannot accept such notification more than one week after the letter is posted.
4. Cancellation by you If you wish to cancel your holiday after confirmation of your booking you should notify us in writing as soon as possible. Please note that if we do not receive full payment at least six weeks before the arrival date, this constitutes cancellation by you and the cottage may be re-let without reference to you.
A cancellation fee is charged on the following scale...
Date notification received by us:
More than 42 days before arrival date
more than 15 before arrival date
14 days or less before arrival date
The amount of the deposit
70% of the full cost of the booking or, if greater, the full deposit
100% of the full cost of the booking or, if greater, the full deposit
5. Cancellations by us We reserve the right to cancel your holiday on the basis of the terms set out below:
a) Your holiday will not be cancelled by us except in the case of exceptional circumstances beyond our control.
b) Notification will be given to you of the cancellation as soon as possible. We will endeavour to find suitable alternative accommodation for you and/or to assist you in this respect and we will promptly refund to you all payments made for your holiday.
c) Our liability for cancellation will be limited to b) above. No other compensation will be paid.
6. Damage to the property We have taken great care to ensure that the property is spotless and that all equipment is in working order prior to your arrival. We ask that you leave it in the same condition upon your departure. Should the property and/or any item associated with it be damaged or broken by you the cost of repairs and/or replacement will be for your account.
